 For EU students:

  • Note that a transcript of the last three years of your secondary-school certificates is sufficient for your application for the BiCS even if you have not yet received your final diploma by the time your application is due (July 31st ).
  • If your application is accepted, we highly recommend that you have received the recognition of your secondary-school diploma from the Ministry of Higher Education & Research (and also found a proper accommodation to stay) before you start your studies with us.

For non-EU students: 

  • Please note that you need to provide both a transcript of the last three years of your secondary-school certificates as well as your final diploma along with your application. Furthermore, it is also mandatory to provide the recognition of secondary-school diploma issued by the Ministry of Education in Luxembourg (please see the procedure in the link above).
  • Students who are not in possession of their secondary-school certificates and/or their diploma recognition by the time their applications are due (April 30th ) will automatically be refused. If the University of Luxembourg is your first choice, we encourage you to renew your interest in the subsequent academic year, once you are in possession of the aforementioned documents.
